Episode 5 — Kansas City and Learning in the National Parks

Today on RV Miles, we’re going to Kansas City, a great town for RVers to spend a day or a whole vacation. We talk about the different educational opportunities the National Park Service offers, and in the news, a motorhome recall, Jellystone parks expanding to the West and Southwest, and more!



We’re giving away some great National Park Junkie gifts from Wanderlust, all you have to do is like our Facebook page and the pinned post announcing the contest.

News:

In the news, we covered the lift of the ban on the sale of disposable water bottles in National Parks, we talk about a recall on Fleetwood, Monaco, and Holiday Rambler RVs, and how Yogi Bear’s Jellystone campgrounds are looking for franchisees to take the brand out west.

Learning in the parks:

In this segment, we cover the NPS Junior Ranger program and some of the various other offerings from the National Park Service.
